Abstract

Previous RFCs [RFC6513] [RFC6514] specify the procedures necessary to allow IP multicast traffic to travel from one site to another within a BGP/MPLS IP VPN (Virtual Private Network). However, it is sometimes desirable to allow multicast traffic whose source is in one VPN to be received by systems that are in another VPN. This is known as an "extranet Multicast VPN (MVPN)". This document specifies the procedures that are necessary in order to provide extranet MVPN functionality.

Abstract

   Previous RFCs specify the procedures necessary to allow IP multicast    traffic to travel from one site to another within a BGP/MPLS IP VPN    (Virtual Private Network).  However, it is sometimes desirable to    allow multicast traffic whose source is in one VPN to be received by    systems that are in another VPN.  This is known as a "Multicast VPN    (MVPN) extranet".  This document updates RFCs 6513, 6514, and 6625 by    specifying the procedures that are necessary in order to provide    extranet MVPN service.
